Upgrades:

Strengths: Tough..Played in cold weather (new york winter) and in the heat (puerto rico summer)
Weaknesses: Upgrades are almost nonexistent.
Review: This was my very first semi-automatic paintball marker that was given to me by a friend of mine when i was about 13 or so. It was a big move since i was going from the classic "talon" and "blade" pump guns...<----which are indeed horrible... but the guns in which the majority of people begin their paintballing lifestyle...

So yea, i liked it and it worked exactly how it was supposed to ..even in cold weather (when i played during the fall and winter time in upstate new york) and in hot weather (when i played during the summer months in the island of Puerto Rico).

I guess the only main drawbacks to the gun are that:
#1: its plastic ...which most people do not like (there is a possibility of cracking the frame....which had never happened to me)

#2: its unbelievably loud... i mean.. really really loud...

#3: its not very upgradable...

i do know that they used to make an adapter for the blacknight so it could except spyder threaded barrels...but i believe that that was discontinued and finding it nowadays is a very rare occasion........

Conclusion: For those who are just getting into the sport and want to pick up a cheap semi auto marker that shoots well in all types of weather... the blacknight is a pretty good choice.....

however.... nowadays that the paintball market is massive, it is much easier to find better guns at a cheap price that allow a person to upgrade as their experiance builds.....

not a bad starter gun... but due to a huge market... you can find better......

i definately had fun with it... and i dont ever regret owning it which i guess is really what counts
